I had this one in a 12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. It pours a reddish-orange with 2 fingers of head and decent lacing. The smell is very subtle, a little citrus tone, not too much of a hops smell present, which is weird for an IPA. The taste is a mix of citrus and spice, with just a bit of hops at the end. Very balanced for an IPA. Doesn't have the hops meanness of a ruination or a 90 minute. The mouthfeel is pretty strong and really smooth. The drinkability is also fair. This sure has some hops to it, but I'm just not sure that it lives up to its name.
Edit: After reviewing another sample, I found that I like this far more than what I scored for. The first bottle might have been a little off. The second time I had it, it was more true to the name and style, very nice.
